I didn't even know he had a brother. That sucks for the family. I hope this thread doesn't get toxic.

He certainly kept himself out of the limelight. Sad for him.

No.

Complications after a fall recently.

Condolences to his family. I hope Trump is doing ok.

5 siblings in all. Trump had 2 brothers and 2 sisters.

Did you really expect any better from that liberal gossip rag?

No opportunity to talk shit on Trump will be missed, no matter how tacky.

Everyone knows why your're asking, and if words on the screen could have a smell, we'd all be reaching for the air freshener after reading your post.

@thegreatchomp:

Wait wait wait. I simply agreed with another poster pointing out what that the WaPo demonstrated a complete lack of class in their obituary. And I called out another poster for his totally predictable attempt to make Robert Trump's death the fault of Donald Trump.

I resisted the temptation to reply to the other poster in here that suggested Donald is celebrating the death of his own brother, because I doubt I could restrain myself from putting up a post that would get me the hammer from the mods.

It's your Trump-hating cohorts that are, as usual, showing a complete lack of class in your thread.

You called out Kai before I did. We all know where he was going to go if the man's death was Covid related.

Not sure why you haven't called out phbz. I gave you my reason.

Are you in the habit of asking "Did they die of Covid?" every time you hear someone has died?

Or is there a reason you wanted to know in this particular instance?

honestly, it's a perfectly valid question given we're in the midst of a pandemic and that the virus tends to kill older people.

i'm surprise MORE people hadn't asked the same question.

usually when i hear that someone has died recently ( regis for example ) i think "i wonder if it was covid"

Given the pandemic, the situation in the US and his age, its a reasonable question.

This is too bad. Don't know much about Robert Trump to be honest, but given that I haven't really heard much about him he must have been different from his brother.

With that said, why are people getting so bent out of shape when people ask if it was COVID related?

When my grandma died, I wasn't upset when people asked how; she slipped on the floor, broke her hip, and got pneumonia in the hospital. When my friend died, I wasn't upset when they asked how; he had a seizure and died in his sleep. It's going to happen to all of us one day, best to stop tip-toeing around it; you can be sensitive and still pursue the facts.

I don't understand why people are acting indignant about this.

@mrbojangles25: "I don't understand why people are acting indignant about this."

Covid has been so politicized by Donald Trump that I guess people can't handle the notion that it just might have been the cause of death for his brother. Asking about covid is now "politicizing" death the way seeking gun control in the wake of a mass shooting is politicizing a tragedy. It's not really politicizing anything, but it touches upon an issue that is already a hot button issue.

Donald doesn't care like normal human beings he's a psychopath he cares more about his poll numbers then his brother. I do feel bad for his other family members that might of actually cared though.

No the intent is only on the right because they deny covid. It really was a reasonable question but the rightwing tears came.

I will not argue with you in this thread you want to debate "lets take it outside". Not arguing politics here just ethics. And believe me I want to reply. I mean this is about as brave and ethical as starting a fight with a guy who has his 8 year old daughter with him.

So during a pandemic it's not okay to wonder if that caused a death? Seems off the deep end to me. Particularly since nothing was announced.

If anything I would argue it's even more important to try to keep things "business as usual" during a pandemic--at least the stuff we can--simply for the sake of normalcy.

The more we say "Woh, dude, you can't say that. There's a pandemic!" the more frustrating life is.

Funny I did not see a single person ask if John Lewis died of covid in his thread. But I do remember a lot of you in the John Lewis thread claiming it was the right that was being disrespectful(was not true). We all know the intent of the question.

And it is obvious when you look at the locked Herman Cain thread(which a lot of you in this thread are a part of)what you would do if the answer was yes to the covid question.

His death was announced in every news article. I don't think there's any malice in people unless they put it obviously followed by the question. I'm a to the right of the middle conservative, and I don't see any problem in the question asked.

@n64dd: Did you look at the threads I mentioned? Did you look at the posting history of the guy that asked that question? And if you did. Can you honestly say this was an innocent comment with no malicious intent?

I mean if there was any doubt here I would of kept my mouth shut. But this is like saying Hillary Clinton destroyed subpoenaed evidence just because she is totally innocent. Oh and btw destroying that evidence is not against the law because she is a Democrat. Or Bill Clinton went out to talk to the AG on the tarmac to make small talk while his wife was under investigation.

I am not CNN I do at least a little research before I make a claim like this.
